Company set to build houses on site of former African American farming village in Colorado

About a century ago, African-American settlements sprang up across the West. Now, one of those sites in northern Colorado is set to host new houses.


The Black American West Museum, based in Denver, owns a number of properties in what used to be the town of Dearfield, Colorado. But a national homebuilding company, CMH Homes, Inc., also known as Clayton Homes, is now taking steps to turn other parts of the town into new residences.
